OPRAH Winfrey‘s relationship with her longtime BFF Gayle King has hit a rough patch, it has been claimed.
Insiders say the pair — who have been pals for more than 30 years and heave been plagued by rumors they’re actually lesbian lovers — had a little falling out after Oprah publicly argued with Gayle.
“It’s getting real ugly,” a source close to Winfrey told American tabloid the National Enquirer. “They’re at each other’s throats!”
Gayle has previously denied she and Oprah are in a lesbian relationship.
“The thing [is], if we were gay, we would tell you,” she said in November last year. “We would so tell you. We wouldn’t try to keep that a secret because there’s nothing wrong with being gay.
“So if we were, we would tell you. The truth of the matter is we’re not. It’s hard enough for me to get a date on a Saturday night as it is.
“This isn’t a rumor I’m trying to continue to explore, but no there’s nothing, there’s nothing wrong with it.”
“I love that question,” Gayle added of the lesbian speculation. “That never bothers me because it’s so silly.”
